I'm not around that much, running
Exhausted and lost
If it could be undone
Will it have costed?
It's taught and lost

Blowing away we stray, wilted
Exalted, at fault
What if the day had stayed in bed
These baubles, we've brought
At fault

After the bliss has long ended
This caution, this fault
Give me a breeze that's long-winded
Accosted, adult, arrested

    General CommentThis song is really sad. I don't know what it's about but you can tell it's sad by the way Dave sings

    General CommentLove this song, all the distortion and different goings on almost makes you feel physically exhausted. I can't understand the lyrics, and in my opinion dave's voice is without emotion in it, all the emotion is wrapped up in the music and distortion

    General CommentThis song always gives me chills... it's an awesome way to end the album. The lyrics seem sad, but in a thoughful, reflective way (again, a great final track on the album). It's kind of like, yea, life's tough, but what would it be like if we hadn't tried to live at all? That's the feeling I get, both from the lyrics and the sound of the guitar riff. It's so calming and... ahhh... I love this song.

    General Commentmxmattd, I think the voice he has in the song expresses sadness, which is an emotion.

    General CommentThis is one of the most beautifully written Foo songs. I believe that its about Dave feeling tired of going all over the world, never being home and just kind of thinking "what if I could leave all this behind".

    General CommentBig fan of this song. I really like how the chorus of it is basically that big guitar riff kicking in.

    There is a strong sense of loss in the song.
